Full description
Travel out of Dublin and into the countryside around on a 5-hour morning or afternoon tour to Glendalough and Wicklow. The tour begins with an introduction to Dublin City, as you head south toward County Wicklow, known affectionately as the Garden of Ireland. Sparkling lakes, dense forests, and romantic babbling brooks make this a spectacular scenic drive and a fine day out from the big city. You will also see the scenery made famous by films such as Braveheart and P.S. I Love You. Make your way over the Wicklow Mountains to Glendalough, the valley of the 2 lakes. Enjoy a relaxing walk to the Upper Lake and explore the monastic ruins of St. Kevin's monastery. Then enjoy lush surroundings as you make your way through the Sally Gap before returning to Dublin.

Great little half day tour. Beautiful drive through the mountains with a stop at Guinness Lake before heading to the monastery. Once there, it's a great walk/hike with gorgeous views. Perfect for if you have a few hours. The guide was great...we had a great chat about different areas in Dublin and other places to see.

Kevin, our guide, was fantastic. Great personality and very informative. His driving was very good too. The tour returns by about 1 pm to the city centre leaving enough time to do other things in town. Glendalough was beautiful even though it was a bit cloudy. Grateful it was not raining!

Beautiful and breathtaking scenery - just what you would expect Ireland to be like. Meeting place was not well explained, so we had to walk around the corner to find someone and the bus finally showed up. Very prompt leaving and returning. All in all would absolutely recommend for anyone needing something to do - we left by 8 a.m. and were back in Dublin by 1:00 p.m.
